Welcome to Owls Class page! We are a very busy year group with so many lessons and activities going on all the time. As a mixed Year 5 and Year 6 class, you will see that we work hard academically; stretch our imaginations creatively; but most of all, seek to make our learning as enjoyable and as challenging as possible.
Once it's scone, it's scone!
As part of our topic on Food this half term, Owls Class tried out some recipes including cheese and chive scones; and fruit scones. One team had an additional challenge of trying to create a chocolate scone. After finding that the cocoa powder dried out the mixture and required a lot more liquid, they managed to create a chocolate scone. The overall results were that the cheese and chive scones rated the best, followed by the fruit scones, with the chocolate scones scoring just one vote in the whole class. Maybe chocolate wasn't such a good idea! (Perhaps this is a first for the Guinness Book of Records in which children didn't like chocolate! Just a thought....)
On Monday 15th January, we were privileged to have a visit from Vicky who works for Dogs Trust. The organisation saves approximately 1,000 dogs a month from abandonment, neglect and starvation. We learnt all about the five key elements for looking after a dog; as well as looking at the current legislation for the abuse of animals. It was really interesting and we learnt a lot!
SATs Powerpoint for Parents 2018
Our Science topic this half term is Forces. As part of our Home Learning, we were challenged to go away and design a vehicle that could travel on grass, concrete and carpet and look at which materials were best for achieving this task.
For Greek Afternoon, we performed some drama sketches; before setting off with our parents for a Greek feast!
The school year has started well and we have all been working really hard as you can see...
